GEOTAGGING YOUR FILES
When visiting many locations, it is essential to remain organised
As a professional travel photographer you will likely group together photo locations into periods of several weeks, for cost and convenience. This will yield potentially thousands of images, which must be archived and prepared for submission to users. When selling images to publishers, exact locations or building names will be compulsory information, so using a hot-shoe GPS device or built-in type will make finding this easier. This is especially useful when searching your image library years after the shoot. This will enable you to add detailed image tags and file names, highlighting your work from that of competing photographers.
